A symbolic, powerful thrusting sword used
by the pardoner serving Velka,
Goddess of sin.
It is no mere symbol to be sure; the pardoner
is an inhuman swordsman, and wields this
enchanted blade with special sword technique.
Painted World of Ariamis treasure:
After accessing the Annex using the Annex Key, continue upstairs.
In the next section there is a set of wooden planks on the right.
Breaking them gives access to a corpse with the rapier on it.
A good thrusting weapon for a high-intelligence build
Quite effective for killing Giant Mosquitoes because of the vertical slash motion of its one-handed strong attack
The "V"-shaped strong attack could stand for the initial letter in "Velka."
- One-handed strong attack are replaced by a quick, two hit reverse V-shaped swipe that does slash damage
- Two-handed strong attack are replaced by a quick, two hit V-shaped swipe that does slash damage
- Follow up to both strong attacks is a delayed thrust attack
Requires Twinkling Titanite
